Once there lived a fierce demon Karnat who disturbed the Brahmins and all other caste of people while doing their daily prayers and also disturbed the demi gods in the heaven. Due to that, all the demi gods and the people in the earth approached Mata Parvati. On hearing about their sufferings, she got angry and created a Shakti devi who is known as Modheshwarimata. Mata Modheshwari has got eighteen arms, containing weapons in each hand, and appears in fierce form. She destroyed the demon Karnat and saved the demi gods in the heaven, and the people in the earth.
She is the worshipped by the modh sect of people in Gujarat and they worship Modeshwari mata as their kula devata.
